Be Well Unlikely Co.

It was a pleasure to host Unlikely Co. in our kitchen, we chatted all things food, I swore a lot… and we cooked up one hell of a healing soup.

Trilby Tanner and Cherie Tsang are the creators of Unlikely Co. They believe there are those who do what they love for a living and those who work so they can do what they love. What’s most important is knowing what moves you. And if you don’t? They can help.

Unlikely Co. was created out of the desire to find an answer to the question above. Committed to shaking up the daily routine by trying their hand at new experiences with Toronto’s local creatives, makers and innovators.

Check out the interview from their evening at the Goods, we’re sharing our new Be Well Superfood Soup recipe, so get in there.

Ok, I’m on a budget so what’s inexpensive and can usually be found in your fridge all year around? Did someone say carrots, potato, onion and garlic?  Yeah, sounds about right.  Well that’s pretty much the recipe. Carrots are packed with vitamin A which assists the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body and they help prevent premature wrinkling. What? Sign me up.

Carrot Top Soup

6 carrots, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, zested
1 onion, chopped
2 med potatoes or yam, diced
1 liter organic veg stock
generous dab of coconut oil
Himalayan salt & pepper to taste

Add carrot, garlic, onion & coconut oil to large pot for 2 mins. Stir in potatoes, cover, reduce heat to low and sweat veggies for 5 mins.  Pour in stock, bring to boil, season with salt & pepper. Then simmer, covered for 25 mins.

Puree soup in your blender in batches and away you go.  And as always, I add my hemp hearts (1/4 cup) at the blending stage for added protein. Serves 4
